    Hillary Clinton claims free press is under 'open assault' in Trump era

    Hillary Clinton excoriated President Donald Trump for his treatment of the media, saying in remarks on Sunday that press rights and free speech are 'under open assault' in the current administration, which she compared to an authoritarian regime. 'We are living through an all-out war on truth, facts and reason,' Clinton said at the PEN America World Voices Festival, in Manhattan.  'When leaders deny things we can see with our own eyes, like the size of a crowd at the inauguration, when they refuse to accept settled science when it comes to urgent challenges like climate change ... it is the beginning of the end of freedom, and that is not hyperbole. It's what authoritarian regimes through history

    Clinton stars as central villain in GOP's midterm strategy

    NEW YORK — Almost 18 months have passed since Hillary Clinton lost the presidency. She holds no position of power in government. And she is not expected to run for office again. Yet Clinton is starring in the Republican Party's 2018 midterm strategy. With control of Congress up for grabs this fall, the GOP's most powerful players are preparing to spend big on plans to feature Clinton as a central villain in attack ads against vulnerable Democrats nationwide. The strategy, which already has popped up in races in Pennsylvania, Indiana and North Dakota, illustrates the resilience and political potency of Republican voters' antipathy for Clinton. As difficult as it's been for Democrats to move past

    ELDER: It's rich to tell an ex-Clinton aide that Trump's 'morally unfit'

    Fired ex-FBI head James Comey told ABC News “chief anchor” George Stephanopoulos that Donald Trump is “morally unfit to be president”? Think about this. Comey offered this assessment to Stephanopoulos, whose former boss, first candidate and then President Bill Clinton, was credibly accused of rape and sexual assault, had sex in the Oval Office with an intern, and then lied about it under oath, for which he was impeached.  But Comey tells Stephanopoulos that Trump is “morally unfit to be president”? Also, Fox News' Sean Hannity, a staunch President Trump defender, got hammered for not revealing his relationship with Donald Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen. Hannity claims his relationship with Cohen

    ELI LAKE: Trump's scandals remind us of Bill Clinton

    Watching Donald Trump's presidency lunge and wobble from scandal to crisis, a Bill Clinton déjà vu sets in. We've been here before. The independent prosecutors. Corruption probes that turn up adultery. The lies and the pardons. The cover-ups and the payoffs. The April 13 missile strikes in Syria encapsulate the Trump-Clinton parallel universe. HBO host Bill Maher called it "Operation Desert Stormy," suggesting the military operation was meant to distract from the FBI raid of Michael Cohen's office, home and hotel room. Cohen is alleged to have paid for the silence of Stormy Daniels, the former pornographic performer who says she had a steamy evening with Trump back in 2006. It's reminiscent of

    Bill Clinton 'said the New York Times struck a deal to help Trump win'

    Former President Bill Clinton reportedly spread a rumor that The New York Times played up the FBI's investigation into his wife's use of a private email server as part of a secret deal with Donald Trump to destroy her chances of becoming president. The conspiracy theory which was reportedly spread by the former president holds that the Times was eager to see Trump elected because it would boost readership. 'After the election, Bill would spread a more absurd Times conspiracy: The publisher had struck a deal with Trump that we'd destroy Hillary on her emails to help him get elected, if he kept driving traffic and boosting the company's stock price,' writes Amy Chozick, herself a Times reporter and the author of a new book, Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling.

    Letters: Readers discuss SM North student protests, Bill Clinton's abuse and KC taxation

    Silenced support I am a 1966 alum of Shawnee Mission North, a retired teacher and a Johnson County taxpayer who came to show you students of my alma mater my support on Friday. I had made what I considered a respectful sign saying, “These kids will vote out NRA puppets” on the front, and “Proud to stand with you” on the back so that if some of you were behind me, you'd see that. I wanted you to know that I admire and honor the stance you are taking against the country's lax gun regulation. Unfortunately, I was unable to show you any support at all. I was told that I could not be any closer to the demonstration than the public sidewalks. When I realized you were not coming out front where you
